Sorry to double post - it was the only way I could see to attach the other view..

This one I fiddled with to make a soft edge within a border

Both taken with a Nikon D80 & Sigma 17 - 70

Wonderful image. "So Brittish". Effective diagonal composition. A bull´s eye. All of the house, including the three chimneys, filling up the space.

The gable with the tree structure, even the door in that special green colour. Congratulations

Good shots, well spotted,I wonder if there was a reason

for one chimney pot being smaller than the other in each stack

and it could well do with a whitewash wall coating.................musket.

Thanks Musket - I don't know the reason for the different chimney pot heights - would be interesting to find out...

A wonderful, whimsical-looking house. I too, would like to live in one like that.

I don't know if it would work for chimneys, but when prairie dogs build their burrows, they always make one entrance higher than the other. Wind then pulls a vacuum on the higher of the two, and thereby ventilates the burrow.

I need to do a little research.
